Most Expensive Danville Neighborhoods
Danville is a medium-sized town located in the state of California. With a population of 43,909 people and ten constituent neighborhoods, Danville is the 199th largest community in California.
Danville home prices are not only among the most expensive in California, but Danville real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Danville is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 95.07% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Danville is a town of managers, professionals and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Danville who work in management occupations (26.12%), sales jobs (14.31%) and business and financial occupations (11.80%).
Also of interest is that Danville has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
A relatively large number of people in Danville telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 8.79% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
In addition, Danville is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates". Urban sophisticates are educated, wealthy, executives and professionals, who have urbane tastes in books, food, and travel, whether they actually live in a big city, or choose to reside in a small town. In big or medium-sized cities, urban sophisticates tend to frequent art institutions such as opera, symphonies, ballet, live theatre, and museums.
Because of many things, Danville is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Danville a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Danville has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Danville’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
One downside of living in Danville, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 30.33 minutes every day commuting to work. However, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.
Like elsewhere in America, most people in Danville use a private automobile to get to work. But notably, a substantial number of Danville‘s citizens do make use of public transit in their daily commute, primarily riding the subway. This helps more people get to work with less air pollution, and require fewer highways to get them there.
If knowledge is power, Danville is a pretty powerful place. 64.24% of the adults in Danville have earned a 4-year college degree, masters degree, MD, law degree, or even PhD. Compare that to the national average of 21.84% for all cities and towns.
